The GMD and Pea Coat
He looks great in his little pea coat, right?
Here’s Tom Cruise with Paula Patton and Simon Pegg at the Moscow premiere of Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, his hands tucked into fingerless gloves - like all the kids are doing these days, man! - and his skin younger and tighter than it’s been in a long time but not nearly as scary as his ex-wife’s.
In other GMD movie news, he said this week that, OMG, Top Gun Jr might actually happen! If you recall, I already came up with the plot a few weeks ago. Click here if you missed that post. Explained Tom:
‘I said to Tony (Scott) I want to make another movie with him. He and I haven't made a film since Days of Thunder. We never thought that we would do it again. Then, they started to come to us with these ideas of where it is now. I thought, "Wow... what we could do now." I hope we can figure this out to go do it again. If we can find a story that we all want to do, we all want to make a film that is in the same kind of tone as the other one and shoot it in the same way as we shot Top Gun.'
I’m telling you, the story is Maverick and Junior Mint, Taylor Lautner. It’s the father-son struggle. Then they take down China. Come on now. It would be the biggest movie of 2014. This movie is waiting to be made. The only problem? I’m not sure the GMD is ready for it. Ready to not be The Dude anymore. The Dude who does the saving and gets all the glory. I just don’t think he’s very good at sharing.
